Very Very Long Blog Posts

No, No, No, No, No or No, No, No(?) Hello zobopians. I don’t believe a blog post should be too long. People might lose interest reading a bright computer screen. Right?

Enough said. ;)

Sham Chicago

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians! Time for a citizens political rant. I’m on a roll with rants this month, aren’t I? (That might be bad English.) Anyway…

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel gets to spend $55 million in property taxes for a swanky new Marriott hotel in the South Loop. Meanwhile…Chicago citizens might have to pay higher property taxes to finance pension funds for public employees. What the hell am I missing? Chicago citizens are getting fleeced and ripped-off when it comes to any kind of taxes! Taxes and higher fees and we have nothing to show for it! Except potholes and falling bridge overpasses.

And on top of all that, Illinois companies get tax breaks and public subsidies. No jobs or business expansion to show for it. NOTHING. TO. SHOW. FOR! What a SHAM!

Scam Alert:Credit Card Fraud

2 Comments

Hello fellow zobopians! I realize we live in a quasi-cashless society, (credit/debit cards). But to live in a world of plastic cards also means to live in fear of cyber security breaches and fraud scams, (telephone & email phishing). Are you scared yet? Read the below picture article I saw from a Chicago newspaper. [Click picture to enlarge.]

Bossy @ss B*tch

…and Dumb too! Hello fellow zobopians, let me explain myself. I don’t normally use my blog as a rant platform, but today…well…

As I was walking down the street going home Monday afternoon I was approached by a young woman walking in the opposite direction. As she was getting close to me she calls out to me to buy her a soda pop from a gas station at the corner I was just approaching. (It was right there!). I asked/said to her, “Why can’t you get it yourself?” As I’m asking her this, she’s pulling out her money to give to me. Then she informs me the owner or station clerk wouldn’t let her in the establishment anymore. Huh?

Now, let’s just slow down a minute here, ‘cause I’m about to pull out my RANT-CARD**. (I’ve had time to calm down since this happened.) Thus the name of this blog post: [Dumb] Bossy @ss B*tch! First of all, I won’t allow anyone to BOSS me around on the streets of Chicago. [Dumb] Bossy @ss B*tch! Second, why is this young woman attempting to spend what little money she has at a store that obviously doesn’t want her? [Dumb] Bossy @ss B*tch! I just came from a dollar store two blocks away! She could’ve walked her lazy @ss self to the dollar store to buy her much needed soda pop. [Dumb] Bossy @ss B*tch!

Dumb @ss people never cease to amaze me. If a business doesn’t want YOU in there establishment, then spend your money elsewhere! You don’t try to get someone else you don’t know to spend YOUR money at a business that doesn’t want you or your money. What the hell am I missing? If I were a sleaze-ball, I could’ve snatched her money and ran like hell but on the rough streets of Chicago, you think twice about that. You don’t harass someone on the street with your economic stupidity. I almost gave this young woman my piece of mind but on the rough streets of Chicago, you think twice about that. Bossy @ss B*tch! And dumb too!

I’m all ranted out! I have nothing else to say…until next time…

Desperately Seeking Susan Moonsie

Leave a comment

Yes…seriously! Hello fellow zobopians. Long time since I made a post; yes I know. I wanted my previous blog post to stand out when internet surfers visited. Now that March 29th has come and gone, it’s time for my new obsession. Former Vanity 6 / Apollonia 6 group member, Susan Moonsie. I know I’m showing my age for this, (circa 1984-ish). This is my “Where are they now” wonderings. I wonder where Susan Moonsie is nowadays. It’s easy to find out where the other members of Vanity 6/Apollonia 6 are. Just look them up on the internet. But I can’t find nothing on Ms. Moonsie! Nothing but older pictures. This is what makes this a ‘desperate obsession’. She’s like a modern day version of Greta Garbo. I guess she wants to be alone. :(

It Takes Ideas To Get Ideas

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians! As part of my New Direction for 2014 I’ve been reading part of an old book of my father’s. The below excerpts are really just notes to myself for mental reference. “It takes ideas to get ideas.” [page 220] How the heck does one become ‘more’ creative?
_______________________________________________

Excerpts from the book “How To Become More Creative”, by Alex F. Osborn, L.H.D. © 1964

JOB HUNTING
Calls for creative idea-hunting

Instead of putting ourselves into the employer’s shoes, too many of us ask him/her to put themselves into ours.

#Question : What quality or talent have you demonstrated that makes you think you could help our company earn more money?

How to go after a new job :
1. Offer a service instead of asking for a position.
2. Appeal to the self-interest of your prospective employer.
3. Be specific as to the job you want, and as to your qualifications.
4. Be different, and still be sincere.

We also need imagination to help us set our job-seeking sights.

When applying or going to a job interview, do not take family members or friends with you. To be shepherded makes you look weak and uncertain of yourself.

The higher you aim, the more creative your preparation must be.

As part of the preparation for interviews, you should line up the right references. What if you have none?
Experience carries far more weight than references. If you went all out with the creative preparation we would see to it that you trained yourself in advance to make an employer eager for your services

A job-seeking interview is a selling, (of yourself), interview.

Part of your strategy you should ask yourself “What if?” Foresee contingencies, so the better you can meet them. You should know by now that during an interview you will be expected to ask questions. If not, you will seem unprepared and slow-minded.

If you want to get the job you want: Be ready to show the employer exactly how they can benefit from your services beyond the arbitrary requirements they set up in the job posting.

I read recently, on a website, about an unemployed older American woman, [Wessita McKinley of Capitol Heights], and she said, “If you’re not creative in this economy, you’re going to be squashed.” Well, I need to get more creative then!  #HowToGet #DreamJob
